You probably remember losing at least some of your baby teeth. Maybe you remember the feeling of wiggling one loose and the excitement of leaving it under your pillow for the Tooth Fairy to find? Have you ever wondered why we have baby teeth, though? It’s often painful when they break through the gums, and we lose all of them by the time we’re adults, so what is their purpose? Baby teeth, otherwise known as primary or deciduous teeth, have a number of functions, so let’s go through them. They: Give the face its natural shape and appearance. There is

The holiday season is upon us, and for most families that means some change ups around the house. Some people go all out for Christmas and switch out their decor completely, while others like to put up a tree and focus on a pretty accent piece like a holiday themed area rug. Have you browsed holiday rugs? There’s quite a selection to choose from. A new area rug is also an excellent gift idea for someone with either bare floors or an appreciation for fine craftsmanship. One question that this all raises, however, is: What do you do with your old rug when you’ve replaced it with a new one? The two most common solutions would be to either donate it to charity or a friend or throw it away. There are other ideas, though. Let’s go through a few of them. Hang an antique rug on the wall. People from many other cultures hang rugs as decorations, not just because they are beautiful, but because they offer further insulation against cold or heat. A smaller area rug hung on the wall can be just as much of a conversation piece as a painting or other original piece of art because fiber art is fine and intricate. Use the rug as a canvas. Do you have creative impulses? Here’s a new opportunity. You can paint a rug, stencil it, attach glitter or beads to it, or cut patterns into it to add interest. Damaged larger rugs can be cut down to make smaller rugs, welcome mats, or even floor mats for the car. If the alternative is throwing it away, you’re not taking a risk by experimenting on it first. Your kids may need to be entertained during the holiday break from school, and they might love the chance to deconstruct a rug and make it into something else. Keep your old rug in your trunk. It’s a real hassle to clean out a car’s trunk. There are all kinds of little crevices that dirt and small objects get trapped in. Putting an old rug inside the trunk interior will help to keep it cleaner. It’s useful in other ways too. That rug can be taken out and used to make the ground more comfortable and pleasant – like when you go for a picnic or to see the fireworks. A rug offers better protection from the damp or cold than a blanket. These are just a handful ideas for what you might do with an old rug, but there are many more online. If you do get a new rug this Christmas, think twice before you throw out the old one. It may have possibilities you never considered!

Since most manager/employee conflicts center around expectations of work performance, scheduling, creating rewards, and styles of communication, it’s easy to see that understanding what will make workers in the Baby Boomer and Generation X generations work harder or more efficiently is essential to good management.
2016 has been a year of big events and large changes, and many people have been heard to say that it cannot be over fast enough. Between the deaths of beloved celebrities and musicians, earthquakes, hurricanes, terrorist bombings and shootings, the Zika virus, and our extended, divisive election cycle, the year has sometimes seemed very long and exhausting. It can be difficult to see the good happening around us and remember to be thankful for it. Fortunately, that is what Thanksgiving is for. If we look back at history, it helps to put things in perspective. For instance, the Pilgrim settlers who feasted with the Wampanoag Indians at the First Thanksgiving in Plymouth would have been happy to change places with nearly any American living today. They celebrated having enough to eat in 1621 after a year of hunger and death. In fact, they barely made it through their first winter in North America. Half of them did not. Because they set foot on land too late in 1620 to either farm or forage much and far north of Virginia where they had planned to settle, their food stores had dwindled. The captain of the Mayflower wanted to abandon them to their harsh surroundings without shelter, but they persuaded him to stay and managed to built one common building for the men to live in. That burned down in January of 1621, and everyone was forced to stay on the ship until spring. Soon after that a “General Sickness” brought them low. Twenty-five crew members died, and of the 102 original Pilgrims, only 51 survived that first year. The climate in Massachusetts was much colder and harsher than the one the Pilgrims were used to, they didn’t know the land, the plants, or the weather, and they had no established relationships with the native people. They had to build a new community from nothing and rule and defend it from both external and internal challenges. Yet these people continued to live, work, pray, and celebrate together with their new neighbors, and their descendants forged a crucial part of American history. While we as Americans have challenges and burdens to bear in our everyday lives, we are lucky and blessed to live in communities with resources and protections. People are free to live, work, and worship as they desire, and they do. We at Bond Products are proud of our family’s history in this country and the years we have done business in the city of Philadelphia. We are thankful for our customers, our workers, and our opportunities. We hope you will have a very Happy Thanksgiving and remember that gratitude is a gift we can give ourselves every day of the year.
A special greeting this Thanksgiving to express to you our sincere appreciation for your great confidence and loyalty. We are deeply thankful and extend to you our best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season.

How dangerous are slip-and-fall accidents? It depends. Small children fall all of the time, get back up, and keep on trucking, but one spill can do a great deal of damage to the wrong person, particularly people over the age of 65. The National Institutes of Health conducted an analysis of injuries treated in emergency rooms from 2001-2008 in order to track slip-and-fall injuries, where they occur, and the pain and decreased mobility that resulted. Here is what they found: Every year within this time period American emergency rooms treated approximately 38,000 adults ages 65 and older for injuries sustained with carpets and rugs. In the majority of cases (72.8%) these injuries occurred at home. Women were much more likely to be treated than men. The most common site in the home for falls was the bathroom (35.7%). Typically people fell when they were passing over spots where carpets met rugs or rugs met flooring, where there were wet spots on rugs or flooring, or while they were hurrying to the bathroom. Other problems associated with injuries included rugs or carpets with curled edges or fold, but loose area rugs were a bigger problem than carpets. The most reported injuries were in people ages 75-84, and the injuries were most commonly to the head or neck. While older people often worry about falls because they so often result in fractures or breaks, they worry especially about hip fractures because they lead to complications and lesser mobility. Not only is a hip fracture painful, one in five people who suffer one will die within a year of their injury. Even following a successful recovery after a fall, older people will go out less and take fewer chances out of lingering fear. Previously we talked about things you should do to keep your rugs from slipping and creating hazards in your home. Using products like RugLock, non-slip rug pads, or rubber backings will help to keep your rugs in place and therefore create less of a hazard in your home. If you haven’t secured the rugs in your home, now would be a good time to tackle that job – before winter presents us with even more slip and fall opportunities. Consider safety proofing the rugs in the homes or apartments of your older relatives or friends as well. A small investment in safety could mean years more of health and independent living for your loved ones and priceless peace of mind. Call us at Bond Products if you need help or advice about the products necessary to make the rugs and carpets in your home safer to traverse.
